Welp, this is my first tutorial, so if it doesn't seem clear say so and i'll try to fix it c:

So alot of people wanted to know how to make sword slashes like this
How to make sword slashing gradients 110 > How to make sword slashing gradients 210

There's probably a loooooooooooooooooot of ways to make stuff like that, where it starts off as a plain slash then it fades away. The two ways that i know of involve you leaving it as a gradient, and another where you convert it into a symbol. The gradient way i'm gonna use to show how to make a basic slash, the symbol way i'll use to do the thing that Patt did.

Gradient way:

Hope this helped c: if you're not clear on something tell me and i'll try to clarify

One more tip, actually looks a lot better when it's a gradient. Also, with a bit of alpha and set blend mode.

(Side note: before anyone thinks that is an animation currently in the making, forget it. That is one of my older projects from like 2010.)

It is a little bit wrong though, it's too bright at the bottom, more brightness should be at the top of the arc.

Yes, good job.

Actually, if you use a darker shade of red, to the constant color of red that you need, then to a fully transparent red that you had, it looks really nice.

You also want to put the gradient in the layer behind the sprite, that way it appears behind it in depth.

Just throwin that out there

^that. the slashes don't make the video high quality, they're just a lazy way to make something look nice.

Not actually even lazy. I think this is more productive towards the result compared to other methods.

Dude, that looks nearly exactly alike from my Cross V.S. Zeke sword slashes O:
Except, the sword slash seems more thinned out closer to the sword, whereas mine was the opposite, and it thinned out the farther away from the sword it got.
